This week we have had an exciting performing arts week and have been thinking about the story of ‘Sleeping Beauty’. As well as writing our own version of the story, we looked at the different characters in the story and were very creative with our finger puppet designs, which we then made during our open afternoon. We learnt the song ‘ there was a princess long ago’ which we enjoyed performing to parents and family members who also helped us to decorate our finger puppets.
Our theme for next half term will be: ‘Where are you going to?’ and we will be learning to retell the story of the Gruffalo as well as creating our own maps for a Gruffalo hunt.

Hello and welcome to Robin Class. Our teachers are Miss Meaden and Miss Smith.
In our first half term we learnt all about castles. First we learnt about castles in stories, and wrote our own story based on Jack and the Beanstalk. Then we visited a real castle that belonged to Henry VIII – Southsea Castle. Here, we learnt all about what life was like for people who lived in a castle, including what they ate, what they drank and what they wore. When we got back we designed and made our own catapults to protect the school – it was great fun testing them out!
To finish the first half term, we learnt all about Barcelona in Languages Week. We learnt about the architect, Antoni Gaudi, and the beautiful buildings he designed in Barcelona. Then we designed a new football kit for Barcelona football club using the colours, patterns and items linked to Barcelona and Spain. We enjoyed learning how to make Spanish tapas, and especially enjoyed tasting it – it was so yummy! To celebrate all our learning during Languages week, the rest of the school came to see us perform our Flamenco dance in the hall. They were very impressed!
What a busy first half term we have had. This half term, we’ll be learning the different festivals that people celebrate. Oh, and just wait till you see our nativity performance – you’re all in for a spectacular treat!
